what is James Hardie and does it come in cool colors?That’s a great question. James Hardie is a manufacturer of some of the best building materials on the market today. You will find their products behind shower walls where it’s important to keep moisture out and many other places where integrity is highly important to the structure and functionality of your home. So when it comes to quality, performance, and longevity, most professionals the market today no James Hardie products. James Hardie puts the value in value engineering.

In the East Coast James Hardie siding is known widely. Here in the West, the use of James Hardie siding is relatively new particularly here in California. But we believe that the time has come when homeowners are more in tune with long-term value than ever before. The time has come for James Hardie’s fiber cement  exterior siding, and is poised to take off here in the Bay Area as one of the most popular performance, beautifully aesthetic, exterior siding materials available today.

What is James Hardie Fiber Cement?

Fiber cement is a highly durable composite material made from Portland cement, ground sand, cellulose fiber, select additives and water. Contains no asbestos, glass fibers or formaldehyde. Our products enjoy the benefits of cementitious products (they resist fire, moisture, rotting, insects) while providing the workability and ease of installation of wood (they can be nailed and saw cut). They are regarded as being friendly to the environment and are extremely low-maintenance.

What type of Warranties are available with James Hardie Products?

Warranties of up to 30 years non-prorated are available. A 15 year finish warranty is available for products with ColorPlus® Technology. See James Hardie's warranty for specific products..

What this means for the big picture, is that your family home will look stunning and fresh for decades. You’ll never have to worry about termites, fire, or moisture, ensuring once again that the family home will go the distance from parents to children.
